I have been working at The Nielsen Company full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Great corporate vision
Interesting colleagues
Exposure to market data, leading to different career opportunities

Cons

In ability to exeuce the corporate vision
Lack of internal cooperation to acheive corporate goals
Poor leaders in middle management (tend to promote strong analysts)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The right moves at the top are taking place. There is a hold up in middle manage that is creating downstream problems. Find it and fix it. Then Nielsen moves from good to great.

    I worked at The Nielsen Company full-time

    Pros

    Coworkers are very smart and nice. Flexible working hour and environment. Globally known company. Leader in the industry.

    Cons

    Working hours way too long with too much to be done!! Starting salary seems high but actually super low after divided by working hours.... Incredibly high attrition rate.
